California State University, Bakersfield (Psychology)
Fresno Pacific University (Master's)
Greetings! Thank you for taking the time to consider me as a potential tutor. A little about my education: I grew up in Delano, graduating from Cesar Chavez High School in 2006, where we were the first graduating class. Cesar Chavez has grown to become one of the top schools in Kern County, as far as API, and has recently become a California Distinguished School, which I am very proud of. Recently, I have gone back and interned in the Counseling department for a school year, where I was placed in the Career Center and assisted students, mainly high school seniors, on college information, college registration/enrollment, scholarships, financial aid, etc.. I received my undergrad at California State University, Bakersfield, where I majored received my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and minor in Criminal Justice in the Spring of 2010. Shortly after, I enrolled in a Graduate program at Fresno Pacific University, the Bakersfield extension- I participated in the Dual School Counseling and School Psychology program, where I completed the program and received my Masters degree in May of 203.
I have worked with Autistic children through C.A.R.D (Center for Autism and Related Disorders) for a few months and have worked as a peer advisor at the S.T.A.R.R program at CSUB, which is a program that help students that are first-generation, disabled, or low-income college students get through college successfully. Through the S.T.A.R.R. program, I did a little tutoring, mainly in English. I completed a paid School Psychology internship at the Kings County Office of education, in Hanford for the 2012-2013 school year. Currently, I work as a School Psychologist in the high school setting at the Central Unified School District, in Fresno, for the 2013-2014 school year.
I believe that with the right amount of practice and confidence, every student is able to succeed. I will help the child, to the best of my ability, to attain the tools they need to understand the material and be able to apply it on their own. I will not move on until I am confident that the child grasps the concept and is confident in the concept as well because it is important to remember that as each step progresses the knowledge of the previous steps is just as important as the step you are about to get into. Although I am slightly new in the tutoring field, I can guarantee that I will do my best to make sure the student not only understands the material at the time of our session, but will be able to apply it in future assignments. I take pride in knowing that I have helped a student succeed in a certain subject or when a child receives that passing grade on the test. Greetings!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
As a school psychologist, I have had experience with students from K-12th grade with assessing their cognitive and academic achievement skills through my training and actual work in the field. I have the patience and have the experience working one-on-one with students in that age group. I have also worked as a substitute teacher and am familiar with the classroom setting.
